Took a break.
A COMPLETE Break.
It served the purpose too.
Not too many things like that, happen these days!
But this thing is worth a mention, really.
There are some times in your life, however insignificant you feel it is, when you need a break.
At that point of time, it may not seem to be the ideal thing to do.
Huh!, you think, I am not the one to run away from troubles.
If I do sound like a weakling, I don’t blame you for calling me so.
Go ahead. But I know what I am talking about, out here.
I went on a two week holiday. Where? Home.
I went back, building impressions in my mind, about how I would go back to being a kid.
How my parents are gonna pamper me. And how my brother would dote on me.
How I would be able to gte away with being lazy. Oh! There’s mom!, You think.
But in the initial days of my vacation, I was grossly dissapointed.
‘Its because you have pre conceived notions!’, admonished my Buddy.
‘It is not!’ I shot back. But the minute I uttered those words, I knew the Bud was right.
The effects of the vacation happened, after I returned back to ‘the-life-is-so-boring’ routine.
I was physically ill most of my vacation. And I wasnt particularly keen to move about, thanks to that.
But once I came back, I found I had a renewed vigour to get back to my life.
And I thanked God for all those small mercies, He keeps sprinkling me with.
I was so glad to see my pals again!
I was so glad to get back to work!
And this euphoria is still lasting.
As though I am on my honeymoon or something.
I smile when the thought of my honeymoon comes to mind.
As an afterthought, Life should be like a honeymoon. something to reminince in the years to come.
I am getting there.
Slow, yet steady.
Have a break.
See you after the break.
